Invitation to Share Your Experiences of Accessing the Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use System
The DPAC received an invitation to share with parents and guardians who are interested in confidentially sharing their experiences and stories re: getting health services for child and youth mental health and substance use through Vancouver Coastal Health.
The workshop takes place this Thursday (same day as DPAC's general meeting focused on VSB's budget for next year, but hopefully you've got parents interested in both events).
See below for more information.
Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) is seeking to improve the Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use (CYMHSU) system of care in Vancouver. One of the areas we are exploring is how our website can provide access to the services provided by VCH.
To gain insight into some of the current obstacles that individuals may run into when looking for support and service we would like to invite you to a 3 hour storytelling (anecdote circle) workshop scheduled on April 12, 2018 at 5:30-8:30 pm and at 2750 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC V5K 1Z9.
This is an important activity for VCH CMYHSU as it provides an opportunity to explore and share your collective experiences around important issues which will impact the development of the VCH website.
A storytelling workshop consists of a small group of people gathered to recount experiences. The workshop can look and feel much like a dinner party discussion. The experiences you share as a group will remain confidential. In case you're wondering, how can we spend 3 hours telling stories, there will also be some hands on activities that will fill up the 3 hour workshop.
We hope that you will find this opportunity to share your experiences enjoyable and insightful. To help us arrange child care needs and meals, please RSVP to Nathaniel Lim at Nathaniel.firstname.lastname@example.org or at 604-716-2381. We can only accommodate 20 participants so please respond as soon as you are able.
We look forward to you sharing your stories, CYMHSU Strategy Team
